What is this?
The Midburn event is the official regional event organized by the Midburn community – the Israeli Burning Man community. The Midburn community started its path in September 2011, when a group of burner friends got back from Burning Man in Nevada and decided to create a community which will conserve the spirit of Burning Man here in Israel.
For 6 days, a temporary city is set up in the Negev desert, creating a platform which will allow a communal life style, creativity, art and radical self-expression.
The Midburn event is not your usual festival, with big acts booked to play on massive stages. In fact, it's more of a city than a festival, wherein almost everything that happens is created entirely by its citizens, who are active participants in the event.

I know no better way of intentionally creating connection than creating shared experiences. And what better playground is there than an event where everyone has the freedom to dream, to create, to help, to build, to be apart of something that is purely out of personal and group desire.
The Ten Principles
Burning Man Founder Larry Harvey wrote the Ten Principles in 2004 as guidelines for the newly-formed Regionals Network. They were crafted not as a dictate of how people should be and act, but as a reflection of the community's ethos and culture as it had organically developed since the event's inception.
